PlayStation Suite-exclusive content inbound

Monday, 27th February 2012 22:30 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Compatible Android devices will soon benefit from “content which has been newly created for the PlayStation Suite and PlayStation Store”, Sony Mobile chief marketing officer Steve Walker announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012.

“Sony Computer Entertainment has a vision for PlayStation Suite and they will be leveraging their powerful developer relationships to bring original content through the PlayStation Suite initiative. More to come on that,” Walker said, as reported by Pocket Gamer.

The PlayStation Suite is a development environment native to all PlayStation certified devices, a field currently restricted to Tablet S, Tablet P and the Xperia Play, but expected to expand to third-party hardware as well as other Sony devices, including the Vita.

Sony’s description of the platform paints it as a way to certify and promote quality mobile content, as well as bring existing PlayStation content to new devices more easily, but very little progress has been publicly visible.

    As Vita won´t ever come with Android under the screen, this is an potencial opportunity for Sony to bring a lot of content and apps. Hope they do it well, as the Vita Store could become in the future a really big Store, having in mind that Sony is trying to create a big digital content ecosystem between all there devices with the Sony Entertaiment Network.

    Sadly, I don´t feel really sure about all this stuff. I don´t trust Sony, despite knowing they have all the tools to make Vita looks a multimedia device with a lot of content like the Kindle Fire.

    Of course, you can´t compare, but is true that if Sony wants, Vita would be full of books, movies, apps, games, ect… With great quality and good prices, in order to attract a big portion of customers, but in Sony´s mind, that it´s something really hilarious… No money, no honey.

    @1 They know this. They know that there’s a place for mobile entertainment and a place for mobile console gaming. If you want to play games that are under $5, you go to your cell phone. If you want to be play PS3 quality games on the go for $40, you go to the Vita. They aren’t trying to compete with mobile devices, they are trying to compete with the mobile console gaming market; which btw, there is no competition. This is the first, real mobile console. By all means, keep your smartphones and tablets at your person, but if you want a mobile console…look to the Vita. That’s all they’re saying.
